    Abstract

    A new method using reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography for the estimation of soil sorption constants has been developed. The method provides a simple rapid estimate of a chemical's tendency to partition in a soil matrix. Data generated in this way can be used in the first approximation for fate and hazard assessment of chemicals.

    Keywords:

    soil sorption constant (, K, oc, ), soil sorption partition coefficient (, K, d, ), chemical distribution, partition coefficients, aquatic toxicology, hazard assessment
